Aye spot on - co-signing all these comments.

I realise the clock is ticking down but I really hope thereís still some eleventh hour way to preserve this for all the reasons mentioned. I havenít met a single one of the MC lads ... YET ... but Iím confident if I did we would be right in there discussing all our daft obsessions in depth. Agreeing, disagreeing, persuading ...

Woody was over here last year and was joshing about coming to my gaff to drink all my booze but I was deadly serious telling him to stop by. Work and other commitments permitting I think it would have been brilliant to meet up and post pics of us on here so keep that in mind if any of you buggers make it this way.

I look in on modgeneration some times but itís a different scene to over here. I know some of the OGs from here have been MIA recently - where are you Red Steve? - but Iím still hoping for a reprieve.

At the risk ay exposin' masel' tae ridicule oan here fur havin' bought the brand - (a jaiket & knitwear durin' the sales period if ah remember correctly) - here's the text ay yin ay them "Privacy" emails ah've received.

Postin' it here cos it goes intae a lot mair detail than any others ah've had - wordin' should be able tae be adapted tae cover this forum should Dave want tae go doon the opt in route n' it looks comprehensive enough tae leave him covered against any legal sanctions.

Noo come ahead wi' the slaggin' oan the "wouldnae be seen deid in it" front.    :)

Gents, please, this definitely is not the way to help Dave finding a constructive solution  ;D ;D

Laird, you've even found a way to bring back the bloody cardigan, I thought it had burned for good!!

We've also been confused over this at JTG.
I've had a lot of e mails from companies that are just updating their "privacy policy" and telling you that it's available on their website. No need to do anything else as long as there is an option to opt out if the customer wishes.

I think the link from the Laird seems to make sense.

The whole thing has been a shambles in my opinion.
